HC Deb 31 October 1939 vol 352 c1758W
Mr. Amnion

asked the Home Secretary whether the powers of emergency air-raid precautions committees which embrace decisions on matters not safeguarded to the borough council, or other local authorities by Statute, include the incurring of any cost, debt or liability exceeding £50 which shall not be incurred, except upon a resolution of the council, based upon an estimate submitted by the Finance Committee as laid down in the London Government Act, 1899?

Sir J. Anderson

These committees are not exempt from statutory restrictions applicable to other committees of local authorities.
